These pages display a number of the rare items that I have had the pleasure of selling. To view more details and a larger photograph please click on the thumbnail picture.
M42 WWII TROPICAL HELMET
This came direct from a garage sale and has not been repainted. Camo paint (ordinance tan) which I have seen once before, produced in 1943 used in Italy and Southern Russia. Larger size with a 58 marked line, shell marked D88 no other visible markings. Slight tear in liner as pictured, complete with chinstrap, no decal. A couple of paint spots from being in a garage over the years as shown in photos. Consignment item!
REICHSBAHN/BAHNSCHUTZ EM/NCO BUCKLE
This is a pressed steel example with a silver painted finish that is approximately 75% intact. The field is pebbled, with very minor wear to the highlights. The reverse features a round bar with flat feet welded to the buckle for a belt catch. There is a moderate amount of rust on the buckle. A nice example! Very hard to fine buckle.Same buckle is here. http://germandressdaggers.com/Uniform%20Section%20Buckles.htm and another one is here http://www.germanmilitaria.com/Political/photos/N042659.html
27'' LOCOMOTIVE EAGLE $ale price
This gem is produced in silver finished aluminum, which has toned very nicely, and has a wingspan measuring approximately 27. The detail to the obverse is impressive! The reverse has four of the original threaded studs that are full length, uncut (approximately one inch long). The reverse is also very well marked, with stamps for the manufacturer, HE along with the metallic composition. . Also stamped on the left wing is G Al-Mg-Si. The G stands for guss, or casting, while the other letters are the initials of the elements used in the manufacture (aluminum, magnesium, and silicon). It is also marked LOK RZA 4 BLN. We believe this is for Reichsbahn Zug Adler or, in essence, National Railroad Train Eagle, while the BLN is presumably for Berlin. This is located just above the wreath, basically dead center of the reverse. A handsome example in near excellent condition! Still has silver paint and black highlights.Very Rare in this condition.
WWII WAFFEN SS COLLAR TAB
This is a very nice example of a Waffen-SS BeVo-type style collar-tab (silver-grey runes on black linnen) which is used and clearly tunic-removed. The tab is executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern and. This one has the more often encountered, brown-coloured 'carton' backing. This one shows some minor staining and wear. A nice SS collar-tab tunic removed.
